Mommy? Can We Pray?

He quietly comes to me and leans his whole side into my body.

Mommy, he says quiet.  So quiet I can barely hear.

Can we say dat pray-er to Jesus 'gain abou da potty?

His eyes are wet.  He looks down, pushing into me.

Yes, baby.  And He will hear you.  And He will help you.

And we pray.

I lift him into me and carry him to the bath, not caring about the feel of his pants. 

Only the feel of his heart.

Gregg brought me the DVD home. Maybe I'll find time to watch it tonight.
